The Zayed Giving Convoys has invited Emirati medical teams to volunteer in treating the Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.

Imran Mohammed Abdullah, head of Charity Projects at Dar Al Ber Society and head of the Volunteering Emirati Medical Team, said the Zayed Giving Convoys seeks to get competent doctors and nurses working within the Volunteering Emirati Medical Team, led by UAE cardiac surgeon Dr Adel Al Shamri. The aim is to provide free services in Bangladesh.

"The door is now open for them to register for volunteering works to assuage the suffering of the elderly people and children among the Rohingya refugees there," he said.

The Doctors of Giving programme will allow participants to join humanitarian missions of mobile caravan clinics and hospitals in the country.

The gesture is in line with the "Year of Giving" initiatives to ease the suffering of underprivileged people around the world.
